LAKE &8212; The Cathedral Green Wave football team&8217;s season came to end Friday night, as the team lost 48-22 to the Lake Hornets.

An inability to contain the Hornets&8217; ground game cost the Green Wave dearly, as the team gave up 420 yards rushing on 54 carries and surrendered 23 first downs.

A pair of first quarter touchdowns by running back Jeremy Johnson, and a 56-yard run by Demario Combs put the Hornets up 18-0 with 2:56 left to play in the first quarter.
